“The IT security researchers at Trend Micro recently discovered malware that has the potential to infect Linux-based” servers. The malware, called Erebus, has been responsible for hijacking 153 Linux-based networks of a South Korean web-hosting company called NAYANA.
NAYANA’s clients affected
Erebus is a ransomware capable of infecting Linux operating systems. As such, around 3,400 of NAYANA’s clients were affected due to the attack with databases, websites and other files being encrypted.
The incident took place on 10th June. As of now, NAYANA has not received the keys to decrypt their files despite having paid three parts of the ransom. The fourth one, which is allegedly the last installment, is yet to be paid. However, according to NAYANA, the attackers claimed to provide the key after three payments.
